, defense and other programs enacted last year, which stay in place over 10 years. and if they'd like to go beyond that or do it differently, they need to tell us what they propose and we'll look at it. >> one of the things they talk about here, you have four times as much in new revenue as you do in spending cuts. >> that's just political math. not real math. we have enacted $1 trillion in spending cuts last year. they are hard savings. we are living with those and we will be for 10 years. we proposed an additional $600 billion in spending cuts. detailed reforms. very difficult reforms over time alongside that. and alongside those changes and the savings from ending the wars -- >> do you specify spending cuts as part of this deal? >> detailed reforms that add up to $600 billion. i'll give you some examples. we are reforming farm subsidies. it makes a lot of sense. in health care, modestly increase premiums for high income beneficiaries of medicare. it makes sense. makes the government much smarter for how they buy medicine for people under medicare. those are just three examples. but there
the federal defense of marriage act, or d doma, and another involving california's proposition 8, banning same-sex marriages in that state. for analysis into these historic cases, what's going to be a historic hearing, i want to bring in kinji yoshityoshito, professor of constitutional law at new york city. great to see you. >> good to see you. >> put prop 8 aside for a second. do you believe that the supreme court will strike down doma. this is what what you've said. walk me through your thinking on that one. >> y bet. so doma is a really narrow challenge insofar as what the statute does is it says for federal purposes marriages are defined between one man and one woman. so i think it might be best to clarify this by example. so you take edie windsor, a plaintiff coming out of new york who's going to be the plaintiff in this case. she was with another woman for 40 years. they got married in 2007. when her partner passed away, her wife passed away, for state purposes, in the eyes of new york state, she was next of kin. so her remains were released to edie. but for federal purposes, they were c
cut the defense, obviously a republican rayon. if you reform does things, especially the entitlements, what is the expense? how are you going to pay? $200. if it goes through the program. cut the prices on the services. you have absolutely no idea how much it costs. if i go to brooklyn, it will be cheaper. they know how much to charge. in order to create the jobs, you have to go to amend it. host: to write for the call. a lot of people want to wait and it. the number-one priority item, this is from a viewer who says it should be to back fiscal for timber living tax cuts expire, close loopholes, and cut spending across the board. a surprise announcement of senator jim demint who will be leaving the senate after nearly two terms. this is from friday politico. just as on the conference but still, arizona on the independent line. i wanted to call and regarding obama's priorities. i think it should be related to pregnancy. there are too many children being bored. too many do not have the resources. host: ok. we will leave it there. robert is on the phone. caller: the blacks and mexicans st
in chicago, defense attorneys call the city "the false confession capital of the united states." chicago has twice as many documented false confession cases as any city in the country. one reason may be the way police go about questioning suspects, and "60 minutes" has learned the chicago police department is now the subject of a justice department investigation into its interrogation practices. two cases we examined involve several teenage boys who were arrested and, they say, forced or tricked into confessing to violent crimes they never committed. each spent nearly half their lives in prison. they are free now, and told us their story together for the first time. >> terrill swift: we all of us got one thing in common-- we did an extensive amount of time in jail for something we didn't do. and that's the bottom line. >> pitts: they each were sentenced to terms that ranged from 15 years to life. terrill swift, michael saunders, vincent thames, and harold richardson were convicted in one rape and murder; james harden, robert taylor and jonathan barr, in a different one. all were found guilty
will. so does washington, d.c. the court also agreed to hear a challenge to the federal defense of marriage act. it defines marriage as "only a legal union between one man and one woman." the law had a big effect on edie windsor of new york who married tea spire in 2007. when spire died the irs sent a tax bill for $300,000 because it did not consider them to be married. >> the injustice. i couldn't believe they were making a stranger of this person i lived with and loveded for 43 something years. >> under that law, same sex couples who are legally married are denied about 1,000 federal benefits that other married couples get. after first supporting the defense of marriage act, the obama administration concluded last year that it violates the constitution. >> we cannot defend the federal government poking its nose into what states are doing and putting the thumb on the scale against same sex companies. >> reporter: house republicans are now taking up the law's legal defense. supporters say it helps preserve traditional marriage. >> unions of two men and two women are not the same
cuts and entitlements or at least reform there. hasn't heard as much from defense. you are from a state that relies on that defense budget. it will get cut substantially. where does defense end up if we do get a deal? >> everybody wants to avoid sequestration. lots of my friends in the defense industry say don't do sequestration. do simpson-bowles indicating they have not read simpson-bowles because it was almost as high as sequestration in the top number. the numbers are roughly within the budget control act over ten years about $480 billion of defense cuts. sequestration almost doubles that. i think you'll see something north of 480 billion. substantially lower than that 950. what folks in defense industry have said is in addition to giving us a number, give us the ability to plan. one of the things that hobbles our defense industry more than anything is the absurd way we have run the federal government on three and six-month continuing resolutions. give us a window to plan and any legitimate business can plan against the budget. give us that number. >> some see that debt limit contro
if you do that, you go back to the clinton tax rates, cut some defense and we have a short, mild recession for two quarters. we have to get serious about the deficit e. i have no belief that the congress is going to get serious about the deficit. so tom cole was right because he wants to get the republicans back in the mainstream. but the best thing the country could do is go over the cliff. >> timothy geithner doesn't agree with you on that. >> he may or may not. but i looked at this a lot of ways. the people inside washington are awfully smart and awfully out of touch. we need to do something about the deficit. going over the fiscal cliff is the best thing we're going to get out of washington in terms of serious production to the deficit. we will suffer, but we got ourselves into this. we're not going to get out without some pain. i think we are going to go over the cliff. >> let me quickly say i don't favor going over the cliff, but howe regard is right. if you're worried about the deficit, the easiest way is to go over the cliff. you have increases right away. >> yeah. >> can
the gays. >> no. >> this whole concept of using a weapon for self-defense is rooted in the teaching of christ. >> what? >> so we have a legal principal that is rooted in the teaching of christ. it's hard to get much more legitimate than that. >> how many people did jesus kill. >> stephanie: i don't remember jesus talking about the guns so much karl. >> i do. remember when he said father forgive them for they know not what they do but they will have to pry this weapon out of my cold dead hands. >> stephanie: right. >> why else would you wear a robe if you weren't concealing. >> stephanie: all right then. now [ inaudible ]. >> we have a huge problem in america that sharia is now being brought into our legal system. the muslim brotherhood is absolutely incredible. we're becoming a marxist nation. and everything we're doing is right out of the marxist play book. go back and read the communist manifesto if you don't believe me. and then look at what we have done in america. >> stephanie: i need some light reading on the plane on the way to washington so i think i'll
to advise me to give the defense department information about the communist and defense plants, communists were there as of this moment. >> our flashback today takes you into the archives and back to 1954. when the name joseph mccarthy was on everyone's mind. the red scare was something that gripped the nation, but after a time, mccarthy's crusade against communism started to wear thin and people got sick of it. eventually they would stand in line waiting to sign petitions against senator joe mccarpety, the man who led the fight against those suspected communists. then 58 years ago today, the senate took the unprecedented step of censuring one of their own, they said mccarthy had behaved contrary to senatorial traditions and the only senator not on the record that day? that would have been one john f. kennedy of massachusetts. it turns out he was in the hospital for back surgery on this day in 1954. >>> now to another former president, we're talking about jimmy carter now. in our own richard lui got a chance to sit down with the former president recently during a trip to haiti. both he and

of the gridiron society and john feehery is a republican strategist. grover, you're playing defense here. one man elected to nothing. the fact that saxby chambliss comes up, i don't have to live up to some pledge i made 20 years ago and calls up and has grover on the phone going through the transcript of what he said and he's apologizing for each segment as it. what's going on? a senator has to kiss butt to this guy? >> i have known grover for a long time and i like him and he representing -- >> you're afraid of him too. >> i'm not afraid of him. he represents a cause and he's been amazingly successful because taxes have gone down for a long time because of grover. what do we nou because taxes are automatically going up. republicans understand if you have to cut a deal, you have to cut a deal eventually. i think it's easier to cut a deal after the taxes automatically go up then you're fighting for tax cuts, not tax increases, but we'll see. and the fact of the mat ser that grover is just a vessel for a bigger issue. taxes used to be -- >> he seems to be calling the shots. >> he's not calling the
the president is dealing with one of many pressing issues. he's about to speak at the national defense university on efforts to secure nuclear weapons. and as the president faces security demands on the global stage, he's proving as tough a negotiator as republicans have ever seen on the fast approaching fiscal cliff. in the last hour house republicans presented a counteroffer to the president's plan including $800 billion in savings through tax reform with no tax rate hikes. john boehner blasting the president's, quote, la la land offer. that just moments after the president took his plan to the people answering questions about the fiscal cliff on twitter, and with less than a month to go, the white house dispatched treasury secretary tim geithner to five sunday talk shows to declare tax rates on the wealthy are going up one way or another. >> if the republicans say, sorry, no way are we going to raise rates on the wealthy. you guys are willing to go off the fiscal cliff? >> it republicans are not willing to let rates go back up, and we think they should go back to the clinton levels,
know -- >> -- you never cover self-defense cases that happen all over this country, too, and were in the newspaper. i have a stack of them right next to me here. those never get on your show. you only talk about the people who misuse the guns and never about the people like the 79-year-old grandmother in houston or the young mother in oklahoma who defended her 3 month old baby from intruders coming into her house. there is a good side and a bad side to guns and you focus only on the bad side. >> well, no, i don't, because statistically as you well know, the prevalence of gun incidents when people have guns in the home in a domestic sense where they go off accidentally or they take them against their partners or whatever it may be, is dramatically increased if you have guns in the property. obviously. >> that's not true for normal people. that is true for -- >> you made your point. let's go to josh horowitz to respond. >> well, i think one of the things that's very clear is that guns in the home increase the risk of both suicide and homicide. we know that's very clear. we know that
this is that there would never be a deal. if there was never a deal and we had arbitrary defense cuts and restructuring of our taxes, that would -- >> for a while. >> exactly. but if it's two or three weeks that the republicans want to do for the sake of their own drama and own inability to make of their minds, i think we can handle it. >> i think it will be less than three weeks. i think it will be in the order of seven days maximum. krystal ball, thank you both. >> thanks, lawrence. >>> coming up, hillary clinton is running for president, so says an article posted online today at the new yorker. >>> and mitt romney is not enjoying private life according to a washington post report that says mr. and mrs. romney are having a hard time adjusting to losing the election. [ male announcer ] citi turns 200 this year. in that time there've been some good days. and some difficult ones. but, through it all, we've persevered, supporting some of the biggest ideas in modern history. so why should our anniversary matter to you? because for 200 years, we've been helping ideas move from ambition to achievement. and
, military response? "outfront" tonight, peter brooks, former deputy assistant secretary of defense under the bush administration, and colonel cedrick layton, former member of the joint staff. good to see both of you. colonel layton, let me start with you. if the united states were to get involved at this point, what would a serious u.s. military intervention in syria look like? >> it would probably, erin, start out with a no fly zone type operation, similar to what we had during operation southern watch, which -- and northern watch, which basically governed the skies over those parts of iraq after the first gulf war. that would be the first step. however, in order to secure things like chemical weapons, you would definitely have to look at using ground troops. it may not be u.s. ground troops, but the possibilities certainly exist that they might be used. >> of ground troops which i think is the key words for all viewers out there. ground troops is a very different sort of concept than what many people thought about what would happen in syria. and peter, i guess it comes down to this, ab
. they will give it to the defensive player. collin klein had a very good year but nobody had a better season than johnny manzel. >> bill: i'll take your word for it. i'll tell you what, i have a vote on john boehner's baloney plan yesterday they threw out there on the table. i would love to get your take on it too at 1-866-55-press. my vote is no! my vote is laughing all the way. so, you know what was going on. so for the fiscal cliff negotiations so far it really is serious stuff because the last thing we can afford right now is another 2008 debacle where people lose their shirt because the federal government -- the politicians here members of congress can't get their act together. but at any rate, you had one plan on the table. the president's plan. republicans saying the president -- there are too many questions and there's not enough specificity and -- baloney. president put out a plan about a year ago. it is in print. it is online. the president has a very specific plan. the republicans who didn't put anything

but others believe we won't get spending cuts that we need. more will take place in defense which many argue does need to happen perhaps though not in the same way it does. we shall see. what's today's date? the fourth now. we're not too far. people say the 18th. we need to at least see something for the 21st. >> they're going on vacation with legislation. is that right? should they be able to take off? >> we should sequester their vacation. >> a great tweet this morning, jim. if you had a big project due at work, would you be going on vacation a week from tomorrow? >> let's say our bosses said we need you to finish this by year end. pal, man, i got a trip to st. bartz. what would they say? they would say stay down there. i don't like one of the defensive line guys that gets fired by the eagles. does he get to fly back from texas? we would fire these guys where they are, when they are on vacation. no. they get to take vacation without finishing their project. >> a couple good poll numbers out today. abc/"the washington post" if we went off people would blame gop by two to one margin and then
up for secretary of state, putting john kerry up for defense? that's an easy nomination to make. you know, raising -- >> boy, would that be a bad idea. >> -- raising the contention level. they don't like susan rice. they don't like our tax proposals. they don't like our budget compromises. they're against everything. >> well, politically, it would be a tough pill for the gop. i mean, they'd be slammed on a number of fronts, you know. you've got the optics of the party going against a susan rice and all that the crazy, you know, conversation around her has led to. you'd have, then, the serious conversation on the budget and again the party of no mantra would begin to surface or resurface. so i think as a political play, yeah. the president could go all in and put all of that on the table. but i think the seignanesaner h would prevail. they don't want to complicate this too much. they don't want to make it much more difficult for them to get the bargain on both fronts. they would like to have their rice and their cake. and the fact -- the fact of the matter is that the president is goi
to the defense of marriage act passed under president clinton that defined marriage between a man and woman for the purposes of federal law. the question is why now. why did the supreme court choose this moment? nine states and washington, d.c. all recognize same-sex marriage now. that doesn't seem like many, but it's happening quickly. three of those states people voted to legal marriage in november. first time ever done so. there's a big public opinion trend here. since '04, polls have been asking people should it be legal or illegal for gay couples to get married. 59% of people said they thought it should be against the law. in 2012 it was almost the opposite. 53% favor making it legal. pew has been asking the question since 1996. when 65% of people were against same-sex marriage. by october of this year, 49% were for marriage equality while 40% opposed it. one more set of numbers. gallop released their polling this week. 53% of people polled support legalizing same-sex marriage. but look inside the poll. among young people 18 to 29-year-olds, 73% say they think same-sex marriage should
to be nominated for something. if not for secretary of state, it could be for secretary of defense. this idea they're holding up susan rice because of this plan to get scott brown maybe elected -- >> that's too much much. >> look, there is this investigation going on in this benghazi. there was a complete security vacuum in libya before september 11th, 2012. there was. i mean, there were transactional terror groups were able to fill that vacuum. our security was dependent on those locals. these are things that we know. what happened on september 11th? these are things that he knows. what happened after september 11th? in terms of how the administration communicated to the american people. these are basic questions that can be answered and they haven't been, which is why you see one opening which is this possible nomination of susan rice -- >> and that nomination would become an entire investigation of benghazi. that's what that nomination would become. >> susan rice wasn't responsible for benghazi. >> i understand that. >> they have all of those good questions, they should ask those questions. >>
confidence in this country if we don't get a deal? two million jobs lost, big increases in taxes, defense budget cut. host of tax incentives disappearing? does that make you optimistic? i think you sound like an idiot if you're optimistic. if i were a ceo who reports after the cliff jump, i would say i'm thinking about laying off people because of lack of demand. because the despite the more rosy prognosticators who are surfacing, there's too much data that shows we will go into a recession from the sudden and worrisome bout of washington-administered austerity. bad guidance equals lower prices. second, while there are many onerous elements, the ones that receive the least attention might be the worst of them. the possibility that 30 million americans will be thrown into this alternative minimum tax scheme. i don't pay it but boy, i don't like it. the amt is an arcane tax, unlike payroll tax withholding, won't be visible to those it has ensnared until the end of the year. it could cause the average taxpayer to pay an additional $3,000 when she least expects it. talk about a nightmare. fin
challenge the defense of marriage act. doma is known as the 1996 law enacted by president clinton that ordered the federal government to recognize only marriages between a man and woman. in the intervene years since clinton passed the law, american attitudes have shifted. 2012 set to go down as one of the most successful years ever for the gay right movement. marriage equality advocates won at the ballot box when maine, maryland and washington voted to join six other states and district of columbia in permitting same-sex marriage and the year that president obama became the first sitting president to publicly endorse gay marriage, a powerful sign that once politically sensitive issue has moved firmly into the mainstream. frank, you have, i thought, an incredibly moving and compelling op-ed in "the new york times" talking about doma and the thing that struck me is how far the country has come in a relatively short period of time. just because i was interested in comparing it to interracial marriage, in 1958, gallup showed that 4% of the country approved of interracial marriage. by
in the defense budget. we're probably going to have a double dip recession, and until the congress then gets its act together to fix it and lower rates on the middle class, you will have the republicans essentially responsible for raising tax rates on the middle class. i can't imagine, again, bill krystal said this yesterday. i can't imagine why the republicans would want to be known as raising tacks xes on t middle class. >> thank you both. next, the president reacts to speaker boehner. stay with us. this is sheldon, whose long dy setting up the news starts with arthritis pain and a choice. take tylenol or take aleve, the #1 recommended pain reliever by orthopedic doctors. just two aleve can keep pain away all day. back to the news. >>> in his first interview since re-election, the president has said that his negotiations with speaker boehner are simply a continuance of what he proposed throughout the campaign, a balanced and responsible approach to resolving the deficit. >> unfortunately, the speaker's proposal right now is still out of balance. you know, he talks, for example, about $800 bill
under the fiscal cliff we have some mandatory cut, albeit us proportionately to defense spending. but it's better than accepting obama's terms crammed down our throat. boehner needs to get a told of this pr machine and paint obama as the one who is holding the country hostage. he wants to talk about holding the middle class hostage. no, it's him holding the entire country hostage and our kids hostage to his reckless spending and cynical refusal to enter the entitlement reform game. >> i don't even want to hear more about taxes. juan, shaking your head. >> i hear you, gentlemen. you guys are wonderful. merry christmas. but sean you said hyperpartisanship, and david talks about inflexibility. you know, and i'm thinking to myself, gee, where have i seen this before? i see it on the republican side, and i think most of the american people when you look he about policy, i'm not just -- >> tell me where obama is giving in this debate at all. he said he wanted to find a middle ground. where has he reached out to republicans? can you tell me. >> sure, i'm going to do it on your terms. he's alrea
in the world market? >> bill, do you know where i heard that exact same explanation, defense? i heard it when wall street wanted deregulation. "we have to be competitive in the entire global economy. let's deregulate wall street so we can compete internationally." i don't believe that for a second. look, the issue is we live in a country where millions of people really have not had the opportunity to learn about the dynamics of what goes on in american society. major, major issues literally, get very, very little discussion. so the bottom line for the fcc has got to be, "how do we create a situation in which the american people are hearing a diverse range of ideas so that our public world has the kind of debate that it needs?" >> but what about the argument that people make that the internet, the thriving of the internet, let a billion opinions bloom diminishes the tyranny of monopoly? >> let me respond to that in two ways. "a," the internet is enormously important. it is growing. but the bottom line is that most people today still get their information from television and from radio. >> 74%,
got to know her a little bit in the white house when i was director of defense policy is that when i had an issue, for example, on vets matters, establishing a women's veterans memorial or trying to get the secretary of v.a. to pay more attention to orange tea she would host a tea and have people come together and then helped move the ball down the road. i can remember when i had seen her after my very first campaign, i hadn't even been sworn in wret and as we were coming back to washington she picked up the phone and said i have one call to make and when she was done she said you know i thought i should have won one of those precincts and it was a republican precinct and i didn't but i asked them to check the numbers again and by golly i won it. that type of, hey she really cares about the ground issues of people not just on the secretary of state level. i think it's something why i would say to anybody who asked me about her she's a very fine public servant. >> up saw that tribute video of benjamin nept net praising her. tony blair saying the best is yet dome. robert, what do you t
